Admission and apology: Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev ended his long silence yesterday to apologize to the people he injured and the loved ones of those he killed. “If there is any lingering doubt … I did it, along with my brother,” he said, bowing his head.
“Now, I am sorry for the lives that I’ve taken, for the suffering that I’ve caused you, for the damage that I’ve done. Irreparable damage.” He told them he is praying for the souls of those he killed and the recovery of those he hurt. Tsarnaev was sentenced to death.
Second prison worker: Convicted murderers Richard Matt and David Sweat, who broke out of a New York maximum security prison, had a second helper, investigators believe. In addition to prison tailor Joyce Mitchell, who is accused of sneaking tools to them, prison guard Gene Palmer helped out in various ways, prosecutors say.
He was charged with promoting dangerous prison contraband, two counts of destroying evidence and one count of official misconduct, his attorney said. He was arraigned yesterday and appears again in court today.
BOBBI KRISTINA BROWN
Hospice care: Her life “is in God’s hands now,” Bobbi Kristina Brown’s family said yesterday, as she was moved to hospice care. On the same day, Brown’s conservator filed a civil suit against her boyfriend Nick Gordon.
The suit claims Gordon caused “bodily harm” to Brown and accuses him of stealing more than $11,000 from her accounts since her hospitalization. Gordon was one of two people who found Brown, daughter of deceased singer Whitney Houston, unresponsive in January in a bathtub at her suburban Atlanta home.
